Pasture chickens...the new coop

   We're raising another batch of pasture chickens and Joe had an idea for a new portable chicken coop using PVC pipe. I think it's going to work well. It's light weight and easy to slide across the ground from one place to another. It's a 10x15 with 5x10 being covered. It can easily house 50 birds and we plan to move them daily. It didn't take long to put together. Only a few hours. We will be adding some roofing to the sides of the covered area to provide more shade. We noticed some sun shining through the side in the evening. The chicks seem to enjoy their new home.

Getting started.

Just about finished.

Wire is on and putting the last screw in the roofing material.


Happy chickens make healthy meals!
